    I was changing the pond water like normal and saw my goldfish stuck in the drain and quickly took him out. He lost lots of scales and swam away. I filled up the tank and left the water running (face palm). I went to check and saw him alive on the ground. However, after putting in the Pond he looked terrible and had so much bubbles on him. I know it's not ich. Will th bubbles give him trouble? My ryukin is following him and I out some stress guard. What should I do? I'm so worried he's just a baby

    Separate him and go from there. You don't want him catching a disease from his problems and transferring it to the others nor do you want the others picking on him.

    He may shake it off, but if he seems very distressed/ damaged then you may want to put him in a hospital set up until you are sure he has stabilized.

    I checked on him and he is no longer floating I think, but the bubbles are still covering him. No one is bullying him or following him anymore. He seems okay and is swimming slower than usual though. I recently tore down all of my aquariums, so I don't have one for him with adequate space
